Post-graduation x LinkedIn
LinkedIn is a powerful tool to use when exploring post-graduation options. Below, you'll find a couple of tips that can help you in your search.
1. Update your LinkedIn profile
2. Get recommended and get endorsed for your skills
It's possible on LinkedIn to boost your profile with recommendations and skills endorsements.
3. Use the Alumni tool
Of course, this will work best if all students and alumni share their BME journey on LinkedIn. Check out this article on the topic!
4. Be #OpenToWork
5. Search keywords on LinkedIn
If you're interested in a specific field of studies or a specific industry, search LinkedIn for some relevant keywords, possibly in the form of a hashtag. If you want to work in market research, a search on #marketresearch will maybe reveal some of your connections who post about this. Or maybe you'll find some companies that are very active in this field and close to you. People, schools, and companies post on LinkedIn all the time, so use this bulk of information to your advantage!
6. Check out LinkedIn job openings
LinkedIn actually has a section where companies can post job openings (more info). This is not used as frequently in all countries over the world, but it doesn't hurt to check! You can sometimes even apply directly via LinkedIn, if the company has activated this feature. In that case, make sure your LinkedIn is properly up to date (tip #1) so the recruiter of the company immediately has a good overview of what makes your profile unique!
Practical information FAQ (3BME)
When will I receive my Diploma?
Your UCLL diploma will be issued in February 2022. In the meantime, you can use the Certificate of your diploma which has the same value as your actual diploma.
When and how will I receive the Certificate of my diploma from UCLL?
Once all exam boards have come to a close at the partner institutions, UCLL will create your Certificate. The timing differs from partner to partner. Most Certificates will be ready in the first week of July 2021. However, Rennes School of Business usually doesn't hold its Exam Boards until September/October 2021, meaning we will not be able to make these Certificates until then. Should you need a proof of succesful completion of the BME programme sooner, we can provide you with an attestation.
Certificates (as well as your UCLL Transcript) can be downloaded from KU Loket. You should still have access to this platform and if not, just let us know and we will help you out!
